Monaco, September 14th: Discussion of the path forward and the zero draft

Commends the President on the able leadership in the Conference, DOALOS for their work, also the interpreters. These two weeks have allowed us to progress in the elaboration of the ILBI under UNCLOS. Exchanges during the Working Groups were fruitful, positions were reaffirmed and clarified, we have made significant progress. Commends Facilitators guiding our work.

We have made significant steps and overcome difficulties. We must move forward towards the creation of a substantive text, including the elements of the package. No matter how it is described, the structure and substantive elements would be the proper way forward to develop the ILBI. Full support and constructive spirit of Monaco.
